Default Self Sabotage

Help!!! I do really well and then I'm too weak to say no, or somewhere in my head there is "justification" for making poor choices. I need to stay away from fast food. When we're on the road every afternoon for an hour and half, my kids (teenagers) want something to eat. I usually stop by and get a cheeseburger or something. Today it was KFC. I wasn't even hungry. But the thought of the smell and how it would taste overruled the logical side of me. I acted on impulse. A Go-Cup. 2 chicken strips, some potato wedges, 550 calories later...a LOT of guilt.

I need suggestions on how to overcome impulse behavior. Has anyone dealt with this? How did you become successful?

I could bring snacks from home. That would be logical. But in the busy-ness of the day, I seem to overlook those things and the next thing I know I'm flying out the door.

aaaargh! so frustrated with myself. Any suggestions would be welcome.
